2021

  • International Women's Day 2021

    In 2021, we shone a spotlight on the Cultural Creative Industry through our partnership with Creative Europe Wom@rts. While women have a crucial role in the Cultural Creative Industry, they are often significantly under represented in high level decision making in this sector and their work is often not valued to the same extent as men’s.
